How Interpreter Services Can Revolutionize Your Global Business
Updated: May 16
Breaking into the globalized market is an exciting new feat for your business. You’ve worked hard to build your business to be where it is today and pave the way for you to take this next step. However, communicating with international clients and partners is difficult if you aren’t familiar with their native language, and do not have staff members who are fluent in this language. Many businesses do this through localization, or adjusting their product or service for a specific market, commonly international markets.
What Does a Business Interpreter Do?
A business interpreter acts as an oral translator for industry leaders doing business overseas, hearing-impaired clients, and various local business employees with translation needs. Business interpreters can also translate written documents to be disseminated within or between companies.
What distinguishes a business interpreter from those in other industries is the emphasis on translating highly technical material from one language to another. As a result, business interpreters must have a strong grasp on corporate language and industry-specific terminology in both languages.
Why Interpreter Services?
Whether you’re about to break into the global market or are already in it and want to improve your international communication, employing interpreting and translation services may be the best option for you. Interpreting and translation services can truly expand your business and make communicating with international clients and partners to be smooth and effective. Here’s how:
Understanding slang: Each language and dialect has slang, or words that do not mean what their dictionary definition says they do. If someone on your team is partially fluent in a language they learned on a language-learning app, they may not be aware of a language dialect’s slang and other less literal meanings. This could create confusion and miscommunication. At Liberty Language Services, our interpreters and translators are adept at all different aspects of the language they are interpreting and translating, including slangs and dual meanings.
Knowing the culture: There are cultural aspects of a language only a native speaker can understand. If you are not native to that language, you may not fully understand the culture or the hidden meanings within the language. Thus, you may open yourself up to misinterpretation which is never good for business transactions. We employ native speakers of over 80 languages at Liberty Language Services to prevent this from happening. Our interpreters and translators understand the culture of the countries and languages you are working with to help your team understand these nuances in meetings and transactions.
Translating high-level vocabulary: During international business transactions, you want to sound as clear and straightforward as you are in your native language to prevent misunderstandings or accidental insults, especially during crucial business deals. Unless you are a native speaker, this can be difficult to do in another language. High-level vocabulary is very hard to learn when learning a second or third language. The native speakers at Liberty Language Services are adept at translating high-level vocabulary with their interpreting and translation services to ensure you effectively get your point across during business transactions. Interpreters and translators have this specialized skill (advance vocabulary in more than one language) which they acquire through intense education, training and experience.
Confidentiality: If you’re thinking of employing interpreting and translation services, you may be nervous that the interpreter will have access to secure business information. At Liberty Language Services, we ensure all interpreters and translators sign Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure agreements. We want you to feel confident that our interpreters and translators will provide the highest quality of interpreting and translation services without jeopardizing any of your company’s sensitive information.
What Makes a Successful Business Interpreter?
A successful business interpreter must think fast. They can keep up with rapid-fire conversations amongst top executives, adapt to cultural sensitivities when working with clients from another country, and sometimes, be prepared to travel often. Business fluency emphasizes accuracy, requiring interpreters to quickly translate from one language to another with as much technical precision as possible. They must also be familiar with business customs and be able to read between the lines for undertones and subliminal messages.
